"my website went dead today -- use "The Archive's copy" "

Don't you think it's odd that your website went dead the same day FoxNews was airing the interview with Donald Rumsfeld? Just sayin'...

Your probably right! It must have been the Department of Homeland Security keeping us safe...

Why should I pay Netfirms good money for web hosting services? When they charge money for something that's free from The Archive? Admins here are begging Archivists to use The Archive's free resources and put their New Materials up here. Not to mention, The Archive integrates My Items with their Forums, and with their Advanced Search Form, better than anywhere else I know of on the internet.

I let my commercial Web Hosting account with Netfirms expire yesterday. There's no need to renew this account or maintain my original web site. I was initially using my dinky web site to share some of my tapes. My goal was to publish a little bit about the bands I worked with and taped, to mention some of these artists and musicians, to explain some technical stuff about their sound systems, and to make sure some of this rich history gets put into The Archive forever.

In a posting on The Archive on Oct 11, 2010, I wrote:

"If I didn't feel like I could do all of [my Taper's web site] stuff here [on The Archive] without hassles, and, FREE OF CHARGE, I would have kept it on a commercial web server and paid for their web hosting services. In fact, I did do this first, before I knew how to do ALL of this stuff here. I'm dumping my web server account when my lease expires. This posting is my way of again saying: Thank You very much to The Internet Archive, eTree.org, all the volunteers and staff, all the tapers, and everyone upgrading live music recordings which circulate publicly."

If someone else had already done this work first, I would have never bothered doing this. Peace to all of you.

Re: "The Archive integrates My Items with their Forums, and with their Advanced Search Form, better than anywhere else I know of on the internet."

I should also mention The Archive has "built-in" hooks for streaming datastreams, serving files, and bringing web pages to wireless devices.

Bottom Line: The Internet Archive brings robust hyper-linking to anyone's web browser. Notice how 100% of The Archive's material comes together seamlessly, sensibly, quickly, AND thoroughly when Google Searches are made by anyone. It's easy as heck to use.

• search for an Archive Forums web page
• have context, information, and high-value links on that web page
• include links to tape recordings hosted on The Archive
